  1. Hi there

    I have an Acer Aspire laptop and bought a little bass speaker that will enhance what I currently have on my laptop.

    Only problem however is that when plugging this speaker into the headphone jack my internal speakers don't play anymore.

    How can I play through both my internal laptop speaker and through this external speaker at the same time.

    Your help would be much appreciated!

    For most systems dual sound is impossible. Actually I'm not sure if that is possible at all on any card at all...I've browsed around the internetz, and this is what everyone seems to say on this subject.
    My advice would be if you are using your laptop for home use only, just go buy external speakers as well, as long as you have 2 sound ports. If not you can get a splitterand plug both the bass and speakers in that.
    Sorry I couldn't be of much more help!
